“Had the crew prioritised their actions to stabilise the aircraft flight path, correctly identify the propulsion malfunction… then take actions in accordance with procedure of engine number 2 flame-out at take-off, the occurrence could have been prevented,” says the report.
“Flight crew coordination, communication, and threat and error management were less than effective, and compromised the safety of the flight.”
Besides crew error, investigations also identified other contributing factors such as the airline’s flight operations processes and regulatory oversight of TransAsia by the Civil Aeronautics Administration.
The report adds that the intermittent signal discontinuity in the right engine’s AFU may have caused the ATPCS to not be armed during take-off roll, or was activated during the initial climb, which resulted in a complete ATPCS sequence including autofeathering. Evidence indicated that the discontinuity was likely caused by compromised soldering joints inside the AFU.
